Listen to Sample of Mötley Crüe’s New Song, ‘All Bad Things’
By Brian Ives
Mötley Crüe has been quite adamant that they will be retiring as a band after next year — going so far as having all four members sign a formal “Cessation of Touring Agreement” effective at the end of 2015.
However, they’re still adding to their discography. Yesterday, the posted a sizzle reel of the opening of the tour to their YouTube page, giving fans a minute long preview of the band’s latest song, “All Bad Things.”
Seemingly an autobiographical track, Vince Neil seems to summarize the band’s lack of critical acclaim and occasional infighting, wailing, “We were the bottom of the food chain! We never said we loved each other at all!”
The track itself is classic Crue, with a crunch reminiscent of their 1987 album Girls! Girls! Girls!
The band have yet to release the full length version of the song, but have added it to their set lists; listen to a live audience recording of the song here.
Bassist Nikki Sixx has said that the band has no plans on doing another album before the band’s retirement. However, the country music tribute, Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Mötley Crüe, will be out on Oct. 19, and includes Justin Moore‘s cover of “Home Sweet Home.”
